Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt features two men leaning in the doorway of a coffee shop. Meet my paternal grandfather Fred Robert Slade. He’s not in a shop, but I’m pretty certain he’s drinking coffee and leaning slightly on the kitchen table.

Do like my granddaddy – grab a cup of coffee (or other beverage of choice) and relax looking at some photos of Fred Robert Slade (Nov 8, 1901 Princess Anne County, Virginia – Feb 4, 1983 Portsmouth, Virginia).

I have no story. Consider this contribution to Sepia Saturday as my own coffee break.
